When building an AR pistol, you’ll want to make it just right. Everything from the gas system on it to its grip has to be spot-on for it to be fun to run. Do yourself a favor and avoid cutting corners regarding every aspect of a pistol, including the short buffer tube. You can save time, money, and frustration by starting with a Strike Industries Pistol Buffer Tube Kit and going from there.

The Best Short Buffer Tube for Your AR Pistol

You’ll be asking a lot from an AR pistol buffer tube when you subject it to so much stress while using your firearm. Fortunately, a Strike Industries Pistol Buffer Tube Kit is built to handle whatever your AR might throw at it. This high-quality pistol buffer tube assembly is designed to deliver you a lifetime of service reliably. It’s also one of the shortest AR pistol buffer tubes on the market today. At just over 5 inches, your AR pistol will be much more manageable when using this buffer tube, especially when you employ a brace. Strike Industries used 7075-T6 aluminum to create the shortest AR pistol buffer tube for your build without sacrificing strength, durability, and performance.

The Strike Industries Pistol Buffer Tube Plays Well With Others

This buffer tube is one of the few that includes a QD sling mount point at the rear. This will be useful since every built-in option counts regarding the finite amount of real estate available on an AR pistol. This particular buffer tube also contains a flat-wire buffer spring, which is arguably the best choice for those searching for something that will be strong and reliable. Additionally, Strike Industries topped off this buffer tube with a pistol-weight, tungsten-filled buffer that will provide you with smooth cycling, and the company even made it compatible with the Strike Industries Viper Pistol Stabilizer as well.
